HYDERABAD: Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhara Rao Tuesday slammed the railway budget saying BJP-led government has done injustice to the newly-created state.

Rao said not a single new project was announced for the state in the budget presented by D. V. Sadananda Goud.

The chief minister said there were no proposals for modernization of Secunderabad railway station and for making Kazipet a new railway division.

“Funds have not been allocated for the projects for which surveys were already done,” Rao said in a statement.

He lamented that there is no mention of coach factory in Kazipet. The factory was announced in 2010-11 budget.

Rao said Rs.20 crore allocated for second phase of Multi-Modal Transit System (MMTS) in Hyderabad was not sufficient.

“Like the previous Congress governments, the BJP government has also done injustice to Telangana,” he said.
